Tyson Fury has believes Derek Chisora is a tough opponent than Oleksandr Usyk has they prepare for a third fight in December.

British boxer Tyson Fury has aimed shot at heavy weight champion Oleksandr Usyk as he hyped next opponent Derek Chisora ahead of the fight.

The fight between Fury and Chisora has been confirmed for December 3 at the Tottenham Hotspurs stadium in London.

Tyson Fury has previously defeated Chisora twice in 2011 and 2014 and preparing for the third in December.

“He comes and does exactly what it says on the tin – he goes to war,” Fury said about Chisora in their press conference to promote the fight. “He has changed his name from Del Boy to War and we’re going to get a war.

“I did outbox him comfortably the second time, but Chisora’s style has changed and so has mine! I used to be a tip-tap boxer on the back foot, jibbing and jabbing around the ring, but now I’m an HMS destroyer!

“When you’ve got two heavy forces colliding then someone is getting knocked out. If he lands a punch on me, a big swing, I’m getting knocked out. If I land a big swing on him then he’s getting knocked out, so the fans are going to win.”

Fury hopes to take on Usyk in a unification fight in the first part of next year, with the Ukrainian previously indicating he had no desire to fight before the New Year after following his win over Chisora in 2020 with back-to-back victories over Anthony Joshua.

“He [Chisora] done very well against Usyk,” Fury added. “And may I say, who the hell is Usyk? People didn’t know his name until he beat the bodybuilder the other day.

“He was a little, small heavyweight who wasn’t going to do anything against AJ when Chisora fought him. But then he stepped up and beat the big bodybuilder and now all of a sudden, he’s the killer. I don’t think so.

“Listen, I rate Derek Chisora as highly as I rate Usyk, and I will train as hard for Derek as I will for any man in the world. If I didn’t, I would have to be an absolute idiot – I will not underestimate Derek Chisora.

“God forbid I got beat, it won’t be for the fact that I had an injury or I didn’t train hard enough, it would be the fact that I lost to a better man on the night.

“We’re going to have a fight and that’s it. It’s going to be a good fight too, because he doesn’t shy away and I’m running nowhere, so someone is getting chinned.”
